Kitchens Don’t Sell Homes

Interesting tips
about selling your home came from Property Industry Eyes Rosalind Renshaw

“Trendy kitchens
don’t necessarily sell homes, but dated ones do provided they are clean and
tidy. Buyers almost always want to put in their own kitchens, but they need
something they can live with for the first year. So, don’t bother to update
your kitchen if you’re planning to sell but do keep it ultra-clean, shine the
sink and make sure the work surfaces are uncluttered. Obviously, if you’re a
politician, you will have two kitchens so that’s double the amount of work – sorry about that!”

“If you are selling remember the
three ‘P’s’ – Price, Presentation and Promotion. Get the guide price realistic
so that you attract buyers who think you’re serious. Make sure the property is
clean and tidy, you want them to go away discussing how they will live in the
place, not the rim around the bath! Finally, make sure you are promoting it – on the big property websites, with a sale board so people don’t get lost coming
to find it and your neighbours can tell their friends who always wanted to live
in such a nice place
